Replace Galvanized with CPVC.

Old galvanized water lines build up sediment and rust through requiring replacement. Is this true for the pipes going up the wall as well? If I am having a problem can I replace only the pipes in the attic? If so can I attach CPVC to the Galvanized pipes in the walls?

The vertical pipes may not be as bad. You can adapt any pipe to any other.

metal + cpvc

Sorry to butt in but I got no hits out of 16 looks on my thread and you said any surfaces can be joined.
Could you tell me how to join cpvc to the metal stub that comes out of the wall under the sink?
One bathroom the metal piece is threaded and the other is not. I don't think you can cement cpvc to metal so does that mean only a cpvc compression fitting will work - then again one is threaded....? thank you
